Winter Wellness Celebrates Self and Community Care

This winter, Sustainable Connections is celebrating many different ways to support wellness. They will be highlighting “winter wellness” for bodies, minds, and spirits, all with a local spin, of course.

With winter comes shorter days and colder nights - and the desire to hibernate until spring returns. While it’s tempting to wish the dark season away, it can be a potent time to tend to our wellness - as individuals and as a community. “Self-care” is a term that’s been thrown around quite a bit, and while it can be easy to dismiss it as frivolous, self- and community-care can be a powerful tool for transformation during the winter. 

Sustainable Connections is sharing a Winter Wellness Guide that highlights local businesses and organizations offering special discounts, courses, and plans to support your health. These offerings span the spectrum of wellness, including yoga classes, massage, herbal remedies and tea blends, coaching, healthcare, birth centers, and much more.

Wellness encompasses many aspects of our lives – bodies, minds, hearts, spirits, and the community in which they reside. "We hope this guide helps you find inspiration to care for yourself and others this winter,” Amy Vergillo, Sustainable Connections’ Communications Director, says. “Supporting local businesses specializing in wellness is an opportunity to give to yourself and back to your community.”

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
